COLLECTIONS: 1 - 3 of 3
Collection contains a photocopy of Margo Horn's PhD dissertation, Family Ties: The Blackwells, A Study in the Dynamics of Family Life in Nineteenth Century America.
This collection contains letters to Lemuel Shaw, dated 1798-1857, from five other members of the Harvard College class of 1800: Timothy Boutelle, Timothy Flint, Abiel Holbrook, William Sawyer, and Daniel Kimball. A folder enclosed with the correspondence indicates Shaw was on a committee to collect biographical information on the class of 1800, and these letters, which date from their college days until late adulthood, may have been used to compile a class book.
Dissertation, "Intimate Acquaintance": Courtship and the Transition to Marriage in America, 1770-1900, by Ellen K. Rothman.
